HELPFUL INFO

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.

Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler's 10-minute pre- trip checklist:

  1. Check all fluids - There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

  2. Check all hoses and belts - A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.

  3. Check the tires - Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.


Follow these tips to maximize fuel efficiency of your vehicle:

  1. Vehicle gas caps - about 17% of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.

  2. Under inflated tires - when tires aren't inflated properly it's like driving with a parking brake on. It can cost a mile or two per gallon.

  3. Worn spark plugs - A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles, resulting in electrical and chemical erosion from heat.

  4. Dirty air filters - A clogged air filter creates a "rich" mixture - the proportion of gas to air is incorrect. This wastes fuel and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.

  5. Don't drive aggresively - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33% on the highway and 5% on city streets.

  6. Avoid excessive idling - sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.

  7. Drive the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 results in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Increase fuel efficiency by using cruise control.

-Dawn P.

I've been taking my cars to Manyo Motors for 3 years. Dave and his team quoted me a really fair price and he did it in the fastest way possible. They even gave me a ride back to my house after I dropped my car off. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else besides Manyo Motors.


-Michael R.

Direct and to the point... Dave and his team and are top notch... An auto repair place that fixes what you need fixed.... NOT one that is sticking their hand in your pocket for things that you may need in the next 6-12 months!


-Todd F.

Great place and great people! I had a brand new tire punctured with two holes. They patched it up well and saved me the cost of another brand new tire. I highly recommend Manyo Motors.


-Zakariyah G.

I called Manyo Motors to schedule an emission test. The woman on the phone told me there is no appointment necessary. When I got in, the same woman took care of everything and the whole process took 4:49 min. Great customer service. Only recommendation I have is to set up a little box next to the welcome desk so people can tip her!


-Noki L.

Dave and his team provide honest and friendly service and are down to earth/honest people that will go out of their way for you


-Joshua H.

Best place to go to if your car needs fixing. Super reasonable prices and very down to earth people. I don't go anywhere else. I've never had a bad experience and have never been quoted an outrageous price for any of my repairs. Give Them A Shot!


-Cameron H.

Dave (the owner) is honest, fair, friendly, and reliable. He's always there, and I've always felt good about taking my car to Manyo. I trust his work and his word. I've referred all my family's non-warranty cars there, have told every friend who needs a car or has car problems, and continue going to Manyo myself. After 7 years of taking my car here, I want Dave's opinion on my next car, because I will be taking it there too.


-Vikram S.

I've been going to Manyo for about 2 years now. Dave and his team always do a great job. I will continue to bring our work and my personal vehicles to Dave. He honors his warranty, which has been due to part failure , not labor without any hassle. He seems to have a genuine care for his customers!
